For Sale By Owner Tips To Sell Your Home

1. Get Your Home Professionally Appraised

By calling a professional property appraisal company you will have a value of your home that is an arms length appraisal. By doing this upfront you will not market your home below market value and you can justify your price to potential buyers.


2. Home Staging

If you are uncertain how to present your home to prospective buyers, hired a Professional Home Stager. They can look at your home from a buyers prospective and recommend changes to make , arrange furniture and suggest improvements.

3. Curb Appeal 

Make sure that the front of your home is properly groomed and ready for guests including the front door.

4. Get a good Photographer

take photos of your home inside and outside. This is one of the best ways to attract potential buyers.

5. Sign

Put a sign in your front yard to let people know it is available for sale

6. Safety

Do not hesitate to pre screen people before you allow them in your house. Are they ready to buy? Have they been pre approved for a mortgage? Are they coming to view the home when you are alone in the house? Let someone know that you are showing your home to someone and what time they are coming or make sure you have someone at home with you.

7. Valuables

 Make sure small trinkets and valuables are put away and not out in the open.

8. Advertising

80% of buyers start their search online. Can they find your home online? Is it in the correct place for the type of home for sale?

9. Offer

What happens when someone wants to make an offer? Be prepared with a contract handy. Decide how much of a deposit you are going to accept and where it will be kept. Also be prepared for the buyer to try to negotiate the commission be deducted from the offer because you are not using a Realtor.
